This has been an exciting week for me. I was in New York City from Sunday to Tuesday for the UBM Women’s & Children’s fashion trade show. I went with Amy to pick out clothes and accessories for The Haberdash. It was such an awesome experience. When I started college I really wanted to be a fashion buyer because a Teen Vogue quiz told me it was my perfect occupation and it sounded awesome.
This weekend I got to live out that dream, and it was pretty dang awesome. Amy and I have really similar styles, so we loved all the same things.
This was the view from our hotel, The Yotel. It was only my third time visiting New York and my first time staying in the city, so it was surreal to see this view outside our window.
This wedding dress and hand painted leather jacket combo were in the vintage section of the show. We didn’t buy anything vintage, but we were all heart eyes looking at all of the beautiful pieces.
After the show Monday, we met up with Kat, who used to work in the shop before she moved to NYC. We walked around Chelsea Market, which was a really awesome collection of chain stores like Anthropologie, small shops with artisan products, and delicious eateries.
The last day of the show we had a meeting with my all-time favorite brand, Free People. Amy and I didn’t realize they were at the show until we came upon their booth. When we rounded the corner, we both looked at each other and screamed with excitement.
Unlike any other booth we visited, we had to make an appointment and fill out an application form for the shop. They accepted our applications, and we’re going to be carrying their line now! It was so exciting seeing all the new styles and choosing the pieces that would fit best in Haberdash.
We left early in the afternoon on Monday and made the trek back to MA.
As for the outfit pictures in this post, I just got in the beautiful lace top from one of my other favorite brands, Spell & The Gypsy. It’s sadly sold out now, but they have a bunch of other awesome tops to check out. I paired it with an old pair of BDG jeans that I never wear because they’re too small. It worked for pictures though. Somewhere, I have a new pair of mom jeans that do fit, but I could not find them today.
Also, I got the fabulous red velvet couch at an antique shop for only $150 last month and I’m still over the moon about it.
I hope you enjoyed this little recap!
